When news broke that Chris Paul was the one who told the Clippers to reengage the Boston Celtics in trade talks for their head coach Doc Rivers, it was clear that CP3 truly wanted Doc to be roaming the sidelines in the Staples Center. So naturally now that the trade is off, Paul isn’t exactly the happiest person in the world.
Per Adrian Wojnarowski, Paul isn’t happy with the Clippers (again) and has made that clear to them.
Free-agent star Chris Paul pushed the Clippers to hire Rivers as coach, but will have to settle for Lionel Hollins, Brian Shaw or Byron Scott if he plans to re-sign with Los Angeles in July. Paul is unhappy with the fallout over the failed deal, sources told Yahoo! Sports on Friday night.
Could this hurt the Clippers attempt to re-sign CP3 when free agency officially opens on July 1st? Sure. But ultimately I think Paul will end up back in LA when all the dust settles.
